YOUNG MUSICIANS PREP ONLINE

 

Explore the Musical World Through Singing, Dancing, and Drumming!

Young Musicians Prep is for children who have had exposure to music. This class focuses on music appreciation and develops the building blocks of rhythmic and melodic notations (the introduction of reading music). Students will learn to love music through folk songs, dance, rhythms, and music games, and will have the opportunity to learn how to really listen to, enjoy and express one’s feelings through music. In this class, students will begin to develop their musical ear not only through singing, but through the introduction of solfege, and pitched percussion instruments, such as xylophones. We encourage families to repeat the class as songs and activities rotate seasonally. This section is a prep course for our Young Musicians class.
